Suitable methods for numerical prediction? Can Baysian probability be used?


Are there any other means?



What kind of prediction are you dealing with? Is it regression or classification?

What kind of attributes do you have?



I want to predict the count of purchase based on historical data(day, month, salary, expenditure… and finally purchase behavior) . Historical data consists of both numerical and categorical data.

Can regression be done on both numerical and categorical variables at a time?

I am thinking to use probability to solve this problem.


Yes. Dependent variable can be a factor in regression
